The Queen's promise
The Queen was born on April 21st.
On her 21t birthday, the Princess Elizabeth was touring South Africa, then still a part of the British Empire, with her parents, the King and Queen. On 21 April, in the evening she made a remarkable broadcast pledging to devote her life to her people. The video of her pledge is here.
'I should like to make that dedication now. It is very simple. I declare before you all that my whole life, whether it be long or short, shall be devoted to your service and the service of our great Imperial Commonwealth to which we all belong. But I shall not have strength to carry out this resolution unless you join in it with me, as I now invite you to do; I know that your support will be unfailingly given. God help me to make good my vow; and God bless all of you who are willing to share in it.' From the official biography, Queen Elizabeth the Queen Mother, by William Shawcross

With respect and sorrow we ask whether The Queen has been able to keep her pledge?
The Queen has been unable to protect her people from the European Union. The EU threatens the British people's independence, prosperity and freedom and costs them large sums of money in rates and regulations. For reasons mysterious, The Queen has given Royal Assent to EU treaties which are creating harm and hardship for the British people.
On the other hand, as Princess Elizabeth said, she could not serve her people without their help. Aside from those voices crying in the wilderness, where have the British people been? Indifferent or insouciant?
Postscript: Many, many Brits have written to The Queen. However, the only reply comes from Mrs Bonici, Senior Correspondence Officer. Has The Queen read any of these letters?
